    I believed its the NOD 32 firewall thats blocking the connection between the 2 computers. Im also using the same antivirus with my laptop. Try to uninstall the eset software ( make sure you have the installation disk with you), then make sure you have the same NETWORK GROUP....... then see what happens.

Just bought a acer labtop can not get the hook up to computor

To network two computers you normally need a switch or a router to act as an intermediary between the two computers IF you still want both to have a functioning internet connection.

Otherwise, take your laptop and plug a Ethernet cable into the laptop and into the back of your computer tower.

I'm assuming you are using windows so go to control panel > network and sharing > Homegroup Options > Join now. This will set up a home network for the rest of the computers connected to share pictures music and other files. You will need to access the homegroup password from Control Panel > Network and Sharing > Homegroup Options. Take that password and add it in to your laptop under the Homegroup menu and you will see your laptop underneath the My Copmputer> Homegroup tab in the side panel. You can begin sharing files between them.

Can i pair my hp laptop to my samsung R480 laptop

It depends on what you mean by "pair" If you want to transfer files, you should be able to do so through either your wireless or ethernet connection. Hopefully you have a connection both computers can use at the same time. Make sure both are in the same workgroup, both have file sharing set up, and decide which files you want to share, copy, or whatever. Go to start, control panel, then system. Then click on computer name tab. Change one or the other so both have the same workgroup, but different computer names. If you change workgroups, you will have to reboot. You need to have sharing set up – decide which folders you want to share, and click on “share this folder”. You will get a warning, and will have to say “ok” to enable sharing.

Now click on "network places" icon, if it is on your desktop. If it isn't, then go to my computer, and click the arrow to go up one level. Network places should be there. Click on "entire network", then on "Microsoft windows network" then on "mshome" or whatever your network is called. You should see at least two computers there. You cannot have two computers with the same name in a network, by the way. If both are in the same workgroup, and both have sharing set up, you can double click on both and shared folders will be there. It is easiest to arrange the two folders side by side. Within those folders are the files you want to share, or copy. Simply select the files, and drag them to the other computer.

Is it possible to connect my ASUS X58C laptop to a Win98SE pc

Connect the two computers using the Ethernet crossover cable.
On the computer running Windows Vista, from the Start menu, click Control Panel. Then, double-click Network and Sharing Center. Note: If this doesn't match what you see, switch yorur control panel to classic view..
At the top of the main portion of the Network and Sharing Center window, double-click the Unidentified Network icon.

If network discovery and file sharing are disabled, the following message will appear:
"Network discovery and file sharing are turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change..."

Click the message to enable network discovery and file sharing; you may be prompted for an administrator username and/or password.

In the dialog box that opens, select No, make the network that I am connected to a private network. This allows you to initiate file sharing on the two computers without affecting the settings for any other networks.

Icons for both computers should now be visible in the Network window. Double-click a computer icon to share printers and other resources.

There are two ways to do this...
1. Copy your files to the "Shared Documents" folder in 'my computer'.
2. Right click on the folder you want to share. Select 'properties'. then choose 'sharing' . Put a check in the box "share this folder as".( the compuetr will allocate a sharing name). Click 'apply"
This folder will now show up on all the other computers' in "my network places".

File sharing between computers

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:

On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.

I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using

Data transfer

What I suggest you do is use the file transfer wizaed that is built n in WinXP OS's. From you old Dell go to start>Accs>System tools> file and Transfer wizard.....follow the prompts and save the file to your desktop. After the coolection and creation of the UMT2 folder copy it to a flash drive or use a cross cable between your old and new laptop and share the folder in th network s you can access it directly from your new laptop. Copy he whole folder to the desktop of your new Laptop. Run the same wizard on your new laptop.

File Sharing with Home Network...only one pc talking

The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless.
To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks.
Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.
